Mama Bird.  Pretty Maker.  Picture Taker.

My name is Kerry Crawford.  Iā€™m an observer and an artist.  But, like many of us, I'm not just one thing.  My background is rooted in fine art, illustration and design.  I hustled for many years as a graphic designer and illustrator, then I eventually gravitated toward something I've always loved - the art of makeup.  Once I refined my skills and became a professional makeup artist, I slowly built and grew my freelance business for 6 years in the NYC area.  Then, I became a mother and everything changed.  During my most mundane mama moments, in an effort to keep my sanity and maintain some sense of my creative identity, I found myself reaching for my camera again and again.  Documenting this beautiful little boy of mine has been my creative outlet and my therapy over the past 5 years.  This has inspired yet another creative reinvention - now as a photographer.  Recently, my family and I took a big step and moved across country to LA, and it already feels like home.  Now I'm hoping to manage the delicate balance of being a mama, wife, makeup artist and photographer, while staying open to other creative possibilities.  My approach to photography is to capture honest, real life moments that have a sense of wonder.  My desire is that my makeup artistry will highlight your beauty and lift you up, or maybe even transform you.  I have a passion for taking the ordinary and creating something e x t r a ordinary, while maintaining an effortless aesthetic.  Let's make some magic together.
